The sun sets on another day.
In my opinion we are the sum of all we have been, all we have experienced, and something a little more. We find often that there are items in our lives we cannot as easily explain, that come from our far past, our family, and things we do not remember. As I drove back this sunset from my fathers house I considered how similar we are and were, though we did not see each other for most of my childhood. Our writing is similar, our thought process on life, similar, and a host of things happened in between that are almost uncanny.
Consider for a moment my father building a campaign to help people (Known as the Solomon Group) where people who can, help just because with no need for compensation, notoriety, or benefit. His work unknown to me 500 miles away I had similar pens made stating EGBAR (Everything’s gonna be all right) as a way to cheer people up, remind them they are special and to reach out and help, knowing there may never be any reward, or thought of reward again. Both achieved some level of success, but independently. It was not until recently I even knew his existed, and he never knew of mine.
We do the best we can, every day and should continue to do so and this is what my father and i did independently. So, as today’s sun sets and the cool breeze closes in on us all, take a moment and consider what you have done to help those who cannot help themselves, or just to make someone smile when they have no reason, laugh when they feel like crying, and live when they feel like dying. We all can be here for each other, prove it.
